Is my chicken going to be permanently blind in one eye?

Hi everyone, one of my chickies injured her eye a few days ago. She was keeping it closed most of the time but when she opened it, instead of brown it was an deep red color. I'm not sure what happened to it exactly but my guess is that she poked it on chicken wire. I've been spraying colloidal silver on it to prevent infection. Now her eye is like a cloudy blueish color. Is there any chance that it could heal or is she going to be blind in one eye? I know she'll be able to adapt okay but I just feel bad because she already gets picked on so much. She had really pretty brown eyes too :(

This happened to one of my roosters while protecting our flock. Once it turns bluish I don't think it'll work again but they adapt fine. Honestly I don't think she'll get picked on more than normal.

Oh okay. At least she can live a mostly normal life. I have another chicken who isn't blind, but visually impaired in one eye due to a predator attack so, maybe they can become friends or something lol. I'm just sad that she'll never see out of it again.

I haven't been on this website in awhile and I don't know if anyone's following this thread or anything but if you are, I just wanna update that she's doing fine and her eye actually went almost back to normal, there's just a small cloudy spot in it.
